ROBOTIC WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
MERCY IS A REPUTED LEADER AND EDUCATOR IN THIS TECHNIQUE
A master of both laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and traditional open surgery techniques, our team of surgeons also perform robotic weight loss surgery. In fact, we are a national teaching facility, training surgeons across the U.S.
Though called a "robot," the da Vinci cannot act on its own. The surgeon controls the device, which translates his hand movements into smaller, ultra-precise movements of tiny surgical instruments inside your body.
BENEFITS OF ROBOTIC WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY
The da Vinci Surgical System gives our surgeons a magnified view of the anatomy surrounding the stomach and enables them to have more precision, dexterity and control. Compared to conventional laparoscopic procedures, robotic weight loss surgery may offer patients numerous potential benefits, including:
- Fewer complications
- Less trauma to the body
- Less pain and scarring
- Lower infection rates
- Shorter hospital stay
- Much lower rate of gastrointestinal leaks
- Lower risk of needing follow-up surgery
